Two Steps From Hell

The experience with Lightyear was fantastic. When we decided to start selling merchandise to our thousands of fans we needed a team that we could trust with our worldwide brand and develop an ongoing relationship with. I am happy to say we got this and so much more with Lightyear.

Steven came to us with so many ideas of how we could make this a success. We were able to sit back as they built our store along with designing our merchandise.

What was really important for us was to continue working on the store after launch and Lightyear now help manage our store and its marketing too. They've come up with so many sales tips & tricks and really impressed us with their experience and knowledge of what works best. The sales have been flying, far exceeding our already lofty expectations.

In summary, Steven and the team are great to work with and we would highly recommend Lightyear to anyone developing their store and need the extra marketing and technical assistance the team offer.

Trocadero Restaurant

We really enjoyed working with Steven on creating our new Shopify store. Given that we are not very technical at all, he showed great patience with us and went out of his way to make it an enjoyable experience. He was always happy to answer any questions we had, no matter how big or small. From start to finish, he was friendly, responsive and helpful.

Having worked with some other web developers in the past, we found Steven to be a cut above the rest. We would highly recommend Steven of Lightyear for any Shopify work and look forward to working with him again.

Andec Communications

Steven Dunne from Lightyear has built two Shopify sites for me - one is an E-Commerce site and the other is predominantly information based.

Working with Steven on both sites has been very easy, productive and fun! It was a completely different and enjoyable experience compared with working with other companies in the past where the client was kept at arms length during the development process with feedback only allowed via email or at eview meetings.

Steven worked from my office where I was able to request tweaks and give immediate sign off for each section. This process was much faster and delivered quality websites very quickly.

Steven is extremely experienced and knows Shopify inside out. He was able to achieve everything that was asked of him and more. Steven continuously adds value and is just so easy and pleasant to work with. He offers options and suggestions and gives advice that in the end creates websites that far exceed expectations.

I strongly recommend Steven Dunne from Lightyear. He is simply the best there is!

Grandstand Sports

We've worked with Steven Dunne of Lightyear over the last year primarily building out our new online store. From our first meeting we knew we wanted to work with him and found Steven to be professional, responsive, creative & extremely patient with us throughout! We needed a lot of help along the way and Steven was always there to provide guidance with a smile on his face which helped to make it a fun experience for us.

We're so happy with the website and finding it easy to maintain ourselves which was important to us. Thanks again Steven for a great job.

The Green Platform

Steven Dunne of Lightyear is an absolute expert in Shopify ecommerce web design. His background as a graphic designer ensures a unique blend of creativity and technical expertise.

Steven offers excellent ideas and direction at every stage of development and is always able to interpret our requests and ideas into stylish, practical web design features.

We’ve worked with other web companies with the usual meetings and email feedback system which is long, tedious and prone to many misinterpretations. Steven is unique in that he made the web design process a pleasure and very streamlined by developing the site from our office so at every stage we were able to discuss, modify or immediately sign off on design elements and he did all of this with a big smile on his face! It was a pleasure to work with him.

We would highly recommend Steven and Lightyear and are now embarking on a second website with him for another part of our business.

Courtyard Classics

Earlier this year we set about getting a completely redesigned website for Courtyard Classics – mobile accessible, user friendly, fresh look and on a secure platform. The challenge was to meet the need at an affordable price, without compromising on standards and quality and also to be confident the we could maintain the finished product with ease.

From the outset we knew we'd made the right decision with Steven and Lightyear. They developed and delivered the project as required especially regarding quality, delivery and cost and we are very happy with the end result.

We were very impressed with the service we received from Lightyear. They fulfilled the brief we set and explained every step to us very clearly. Not only did they build our Shopify store but they also created our logo and graphics.

They worked within our time frames and after completion of the project remained very accessible and available to us to deal with any of our queries. We are now looking forward to commencing a marketing campaign with them to drive even more sales.

In short, they are very easy to do business with and coupled with their in-depth knowledge, I would have no hesitation in recommending Lightyear.

When we decided we wanted to build a Shopify store, there were so many templates to choose from, Steven worked with us to identify the right template for our needs. He developed our new store in a very short period of time to coincide with some product launches and nothing we asked for was a problem!

Before we launched, he also helped us to create a new logo design that would work very effectively online. Since we launched he has become an integral part of our marketing output. We are really happy with the results! Steven gets five stars from us as the person to work with when building a Shopify store!

As digital illiterates we were worried about redesigning our store and moving to Shopify but we had great confidence working with Steven. We had very fixed ideas on how we wanted the site to look and function, Steven took these on board and enhanced them.

I recently created my first store and worked with Steven in Logo 24 to help me get it off the ground! He was very knowledgable about Shopify and had great ideas on how to make the most of the template I choose. Logo 24 kept me focussed on the crucial steps needed to create a good shopping experience and get my store up and running in a short period of time. Steven was very courteous and engaging throughout the entire project and I would thoroughly recommend Logo 24 to anyone wanting to create a Shopify Store. Michelle.
